polygon is a set of PHP classes that can be used to perform different types of geometric operations with arbitary polygons. It provides generic polygon and vertex classes that support mixing lines and arc segments between vertices. Polygons may be self-intersecting, convex, or concave. It provides means to perform intersection and union operations with the shapes and to compute shape clipping.

A polygon is a shape that is composed of closed arcs; examples are counties, lakes, and islands. From a mathematical perspective, a polygon has an area, an inside and an outside, and a perimeter.

An n-sided shape defined by a group of ordered vertices and the edges that are defined between pairs of those vertices. Polygons can be either simple shapes, such as polygonal primitives, or complex models built from the various Maya polygonal tools. A polygonal object can be closed, open, or made up of shells, which are disjointed pieces of geometry. In other software packages, known as mesh.
A polygon (, from Greek, literally "many-angle") is a plane figure that is bounded by closed planar paths composed of a finite number of sequential line segments. The straight line segments that make up the boundary of the polygon are called its edges or sides and the points where the edges meet are the polygon's vertices. The polygon is called simple, if its boundary is described by exactly one closed path that has no self-intersections.
